Car rental location Saintes Train Station

Saintes Train Station Guide

Guide

The city of Saintes, in the Poitou-Charentes region of France's central west coast, was founded by the Romans over 2000 years ago. The conquering troops of Caesar chose the location for settlement on the banks of the Charente River. The city retains evidence of its past even today, and is known for its strong sense of its history and deep cultural roots.

The city is divided by the river into the left and right banks, with the left bank being home to the administrative seats, the courts of justice and the remains of a Roman forum. The right bank is where visitors can enjoy the natural surroundings of the city's public garden, with its variety of trees, plants and flowers.

The right bank is also where the Saintes Rail Station is located. Saintes is an important transport hub in the region and is well connected both by road and rail to the rest of the country. Several daily trains arrive in Saintes from all parts of France. The station has passenger facilities, including car hire.

The Saintes Rail Station will see an expansion in 2009 when more rail links are added to the regional TER trains. The project will be undertaken by the Autorail a Grande Capacit TER de la Rgion.

The motorways in and out of Saintes are in good order, making car hire another option for exploring the surrounding countryside. There are beautiful churches in nearby Fenioux, Aulnay and Nuaill sur Boutonne. In Rioux, the Chteau of Roche-Courbon was once described as Sleeping Beauty's castle and is well worth a visit. For the best rates and availability, book a rental car online in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
